The 2013 Jeep Compass returns mileage figures that might be a little disappointing. Or they may not; it does depend on your point of reference.

It may be a bit surprising to some shoppers that a vehicle this compact only returns mileage figures soundly in the 20s. Only for 2013 Jeep has eked a little more highway mileage out of its five-speed manual model, managing 30 mpg on the highway, but that's the best it gets. EPA City ratings range from 20 to 23 mpg.

With 4WD and the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package, the Compass gets a miserable 20 mpg city, 23 highway—that's on par, or even worse, than some much larger SUVs with more space and serious towing ability.

Conclusion

Those who expect the Compass to return the gas mileage of a small car will be disappointed.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
